    The hottest team in the Pacific Coast League just last week has cooled off in recent days, but the team hoping to catch up hasn’t been able to close much ground.

    The latter is the Albuquerque Isotopes, who on Wednesday lost their second straight to visiting Salt Lake, thus remaining two games behind the RedHawks in the pursuit of the PCL American Southern Division title.
